Great stories tell stories that about brokenness and redemption. Yet, many of us are tempted to tell our story by only one chapter even when we know it's destructive to do so. This episode deals with some beginning ideas on how we can live fully and tell our life with a whole plot
Maybe we pick too many battles and that directly leads to a less happy life. If that's true, we can reverse the trend by picking fewer fights. Do you have a process to determine if you are going to engage in a fight or walk away? This episode will help you craft some ideas.
Can you envision a world you'd like to be a part of? What are you doing to achieve that world?
Seeing our problems and difficulties with an accurate lens is one of the most important skills we can develop. Our temptation can be to ignore our problems or to elevate them to the level of an unconquerable monster.
If you haven't healed from your hurts, you are more likely to repeat the hurting. In a world that seems to move more toward violence to handle relationships daily, this episode is a call to live differently.
In the last episode, I discussed the idea that our addiction to our anger is killing us. In this episode, I want to talk about ways we can let go of our anger and look to make long-lasting changes in our own lives and then the world. Experience the anger but not act out of it.
Recently I read an article that talked about our addiction to anger and how it's killing us. I think it might be a little worse, I think it's poisoning our relationships. There is hope. This is part one of a two-part series.
Cost is different from price. When we teach ourselves to look at cost, we can be positioned to make better decisions in all areas of our life.
Often boundaries will seem like the person enforcing them is mean. Even more often, what we do with boundaries can be very messy. A score of emails and a comment on the podcast page help shape this episode. Enjoy!
Two things often hold us back from trying new things. Imposter syndrome and embarrassment from failure. In this episode, I explore why we struggle with those things and what we can do to overcome them.
Examining our own expectations of what we wanted to happen can be as important as how we experienced what actually happened.
Do you know your own core values? Can you articulate them? What does it mean to live them out? This episode deals with four questions that offer a framework to ponder our current life and our future.
Someone once told that they believed the biggest stressor on marriage was kids. Often, a question I hear is, what does it mean to be unified? How do we parent during a conflict and be on the same page? How should we decide if we behaved correctly? What exactly is moral reasoning?
How do we communicate in a healthy way when we disagree? Not talking is not working. We can do better by engaging in a healthy way.
There is no growth or change without pain. There is no path forward that isn't hard. These three tools can help you make sure you pick the pain and the path that leads to the change that brings the most health and the greatest benefit.
Change starts in honesty. So often, we lie to ourselves about where we are at in society. We refuse to do the work and then get salty when we fail to see the progress. It's time to change that.
We often cannot control what happens to us, we can control how we respond. We might have to let the initial emotion pass through us without action and then move forward, but we almost always control how we move forward. We can only play the cards in front of us.
Commitment creates capability. Often people stop their commitment because they don't feel they have the capabilities. What if we flipped that idea?
To effectively live well, we must take ownership of our own life. We have to both accept what has happened and look with a plan toward the future.
As we look to a new year, it is imperative that we learn to intentionally evaluate and manage our relationships. We might need to end some relationships intentionally.
